Gay - KrazzyMadd

Tony Draper created the label in the 90's. Memphis duo, 8Ball and MJG were signed in 1990. Other rappers include Tela, South Circle and Crime boss. However in early 2000's 8Ball and MJG left the label, the label hasn't received the same success.

25 Interscope Records

How come this ain't in the top 10?
Are people growin deaf? This label is legendary!

26 Visionary Music Group

Logic got his start here, signed with definitely jam and is gonna be one of the top rappers in a year or two

Though Visonary does not have many artist signed to it, I guarantee that the artist already signed, will be known as the greatest of their time. Mark my words.

27 Stones Throw Records
28 Taylor Gang Records

I am embarrassed that this is at 22. THIS IS THE BEST RECORD LABEL THAT HAS EVER EXISTED THE ONLY REASON ITS NOT NUMBER ONE IS BECAUSE YOU NEANDERTHALS haven't LISTENED TO THE RIGHT SONGS. ATMOSPHERE - 1597, sound is vibration, scapegoat, gods bathroom floor, yesterday, sunshine... EYEDEA - monster inside, song about a song, my day at the brain factory, the void (internal theory), weird side, hard headed, exhausted love, paradise... THE DYNOSPECTRUM - breath of fresh, anything is everything... BLUEPRINT - radio inactive.. That's not even the tip of the iceberg but I doubt many of you will actually take the time and listen to the songs above, all I can say about that is I pity you.

-Brandon Buckingham

Rymesayers has, by far the most lyrically gifted, hard working, and influential names in the hip hop, rap, or whatever you wanna call the game. Although their not seen on MTV or most public radio stations around the world, they deserve all the respect and credentials that can be possibly given. If you have real love for the music then you know, Rymesayers is number one on the list.

Atmosphere, eyedea, brother ali, sage francis, evidence. Need I say more
